About Us

What we do

Our mission is to deliver excellent endurance sports events to a wide range of ages & abilities. Our events include triathlons & duathlons, open water swimming, gravel and road cycling sportives & road & trail running races.
We work hard on delivering excellent events. And that is a challenge as no venue is perfect and dealing with landowners, traffic, councils, the general public & other stakeholders can be tough.
We couldn’t deliver these events without a great team of people including Helen Simcoe Walker, Nigel Evans, Dawn Lamerton, Rachel Harvey, Maria Nimmo & Tim Mockford.

Highlights from Past Races and Events

We have some amazing event locations in Devon. These range from Blackpool Sands beach, in the video above to the Torbay Velopark which is a 100% traffic free venue with a 25m pool, a velopark on smooth tarmac & a parkland run all in close proximity.


Resources for Racers

Events for beginners

We try to be inclusive with our events and encourage all ages & abilities. Even the Brownlee brothers were beginners once. And for a lot of people there’s satisfaction in just finishing a multisport event.
